Do any trading skills, such as accounting and broker relations, affect costs associated with selling items through contracts?

Yes:

Identical contracts submitted by 2 characters in different markets - 1 with skills at level 4, other with skills at level 5:

Level 5.

2016.11.12 18:46:54 Contract Sales Tax -80,000 ISK (.5%)
2016.11.12 18:46:54 Contract Deposit Refund 160,000 ISK
2016.11.12 18:46:54 Contract Price 16,000,000 ISK
2016.11.11 07:56:48 Contract Deposit -160,000 ISK
2016.11.11 07:56:48 Contract Brokers Fee -79,200 ISK (.495%)

Level 4.

2016.11.11 20:44:47 Contract Sales Tax -96,000 ISK (.6%)
2016.11.11 20:44:47 Contract Deposit Refund 160,000 ISK
2016.11.11 20:44:47 Contract Price 16,000,000 ISK
2016.11.11 12:44:11 Contract Deposit -160,000 ISK
2016.11.11 12:44:11 Contract Brokers Fee -84,480 ISK (.528%)

The brokerage fee will be complicated by standing - they aren't identical but the skills do appear to make a difference.

Edit: this affects public contracts. Private contracts have a flat rate 10,000 ISK brokerage fee and no tax.
